. >> in fact, more than 180 people were transported to 11 hospitals and the fire department here at sfo, there are three stations here, had no warning. all they were told, there was a hard landing. they had no warning of any distress. so when they arrived on the scene and saw the plane broken up, they had to go into action immediately, but they were not prepared for that. and san francisco airport is running at half capacity. there is some talk they will try to open up one runway -- one major one and one minor one are affected. as of right now, san francisco is running at half capacity. they hope to get one of the runways open today to move this process along. the entire process here probably won't be done for 5 to 6 days as they go through the crash site and remove all the debris here, as this investigation goes forward and the investigation itself, we are told, you won't hear back for potentially 8 to 9 months before we know for sure what happened. but we will get preliminary information from ntsb, later today in a press conference. >> back to you. >> thank you very much. >> fox news

to the passengers to brace or any emergency. we also know that sfo is under construction and the instrument landing system or ils as they call it was out of service for this particular runway. the boeing 777 has a redundant system that can be used in this case and the visual flight. they also have the old-school red light, white light landing system that pilots can actually look off into the distance and see whether or not they're too high or too low. clearly the glide path into sto was wrong and that will be where a lot of this centers on. >> and certainly we're getting a lot more eyewitness information from the survivors and rescue crews. what have we learned since last we spoke? >> reporter: the two that were killed railroad found on the runway, we understand. some of the survivors were found in the water, amazingly enough. and when that plane crashed, some of the force of that pushed seats together, trapped individuals in their seats. the plight crew asked emergency responder who arrived at the plane for their knives so they could cut passengers free and get everybody out. >> amazing stories th
